Arsene Wenger has warned Arsenal cannot afford to switch off as they enter the stage of the season which "matters the most".

The Gunners head into their final eight Barclays Premier League matches having rediscovered form to put together seven straight wins which have lifted them above Tottenham into third place. However, with a trip to relegation battlers QPR on Saturday to come and with only a three-point lead over Spurs, Wenger accepts there can be little room for complacency.

"This is the period where what we do matters the most, so we just want to keep our focus on this and not worry about anybody else's results," the Arsenal manager said. "We have shown both footballing and mental qualities in recent weeks and now we need to continue our development."
